BT has announced that it has attracted over 100,000 members in the UK to BT FON, the world's largest Wi-Fi community, where members share their broadband connection to establish a network of wireless hotspots.

Every BT customer that joins the BT FON community agrees to share a small portion of their home broadband connection, by opening up a separate, secure channel on their wireless router,­ the BT Home Hub.

They are then able to use, free of charge, the BT FON hotspots of other members, BT Openzone hotspots, BT's UK wireless cities, and Fon hotspots around the world.

Since the launch of BT FON in October last year, 100,000 BT Total Broadband customers have come together to join the BT FON community, creating thousands of new Wi-Fi hotspots up and down the country.
